CODY CHESNUTT – SINGLE REVIEW

Cody Chesnutt – Image of Love (One Little Indian)
Cody Chesnutt - Image of Love

Release Date: Out Now

The name of Cody Chesnutt has tickled my ears a few times recently but his music has only just followed suit in the shape of new single, ‘Image of Love’. This is funky, exciting and soulful stuff in the vein of Prince collaborating with James Brown with Quincy Jones at the controls. The beat pops and pulsates while the synths are more squelchy than anything I’ve heard this side of the late 80s and vocally we’re firmly in Gregory Porter territory. There are sprinklings of melody here but this is the essence of funk, relying heavily on the rhythm section and hitting you hard where it hurts. But it hurts so good. So, so good and so funky.
